NEW SINGLE: THE OWEN GUNS PUT THE BOOT INTO EVERYONE’S LEAST FAVOURITE IRISHMAN

We are not fans of Bono. Not many are! This recent track from Aussie Punk band The Owen Guns caught our attention with his heartfelt message to Bono which we can all agree on.

I love the Aussies. They are plain speaking and usually great fun to be around. Now this could possibly be as over 2,000,000 of them come from Irish backgrounds! That is 10.4% of the total population. This might also explain why their Celtic-Punk bands are so bloody good. Today though we are featuring something a little different. Something with a very important message…

The Owen Guns are a Streetpunk band based in New South Wales with members split between Sydney and the South Coast. They’ve been active since 2020, releasing two EP’s Violating Community Standards and Electric Boogaloo and have just released their first full length album. Their members are not just veterans of the Aussie Punk and Hardcore music scene but also Canada and China too. Unlike most of the current crop of Punk bands both here and in Oz their are no fake American accents and more importantly no fear of offending people. Known for mixing politics and humour into their songs and for not taking themselves or anyone else too seriously. The Owen Guns are not a safe space!

Whats that spell?  cunt 
Whats that spell? cunt 
Whats that spell? cunt 

700 million.. yeah that’s a lot of cash 
Maybe you should pay your share in tax 
If you’re really concerned about the poor 
You’re such a bore don’t wanna see you on tv anymore 
Blatant hypocrisy 
Is too big to ignore
Bono Bono you’re shit and you know it
Every time you start to speak you go ahead and show it
Bono Bono you’re shit and you know it
Every time you start to speak you go ahead and show it
Designer glasses…flash designer suit
You talk about the poor while you’re counting loot
You flew your hat first class..half way across Europe
Media slut, Mouth always open,
i wish you’d keep it shut
Your charity’s a fraud and you’re a fucking cunt
You’re a fucking cunt
Bono Bono you’re shit and you know it 
Every time you start to speak you go ahead and show it 
Bono Bono you’re shit and you know it 
Every time you start to speak you go ahead and show it

Bono you’re a cunt
Lots of shouty swearing and fast guitars. The track is taken from the album Dawn Of The Braindead which came out at the end of September. It was recorded and mixed at Rock The Nation Studios by Shoeless Geoff Mullard and mastered by Jason at Goatsound. The album is twelve songs of superb old school Hardcore Punk. Nothing groundbreaking but pure energy throughout though nothing tops ‘Not You Too’ though which let’s face it Bono really deserves, the 2 faced pompous hypocrite. While lecturing us about the environment he did indeed pay for a ticket on a plane and a taxi for his hat! While St. Bono preaches to us from atop ‘a hillside near the town of Capernaum’ about poverty when Ireland ended tax exemption for artists in 2006 the first thing U2 did was immediately move their tax affairs to The Netherlands.
“Well, tonight thank God it’s them instead of me”
The lyric’s for ‘Not You Too’ were penned by lead singer Sean The Bastard whose pathological hatred of Bono is well known. The lyrics were originally written back in 2017 and had to be changed for recording as Bono’s net worth had risen a hundred million dollars in that time – what a cunt! The video was animated by Mike Foxall (theartoffox.com.au) who managed to really capture the feel of the song and the cuntiness of Bono himself. I mean just look at him.  Absolute twat!

    I find the entire band despicable not just Bono. Some evidence they were groomed early to be a voice of the NWO.
